Horror Case Files: Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)

Resident Evil: Afterlife

It is the 4th annual Horror Case Files! Wes Anderson comes back to the director’s chair after taking hiatus from the franchise since the first installment. After life follows the events of Alice and her clone friends from Extinction. Well, since the final film is coming out January 27, 2017, I figure I revisit the series.

It’s a great time waster at work and you might find some hidden gems, or avoid some hot messes.

Horror Case Files Verdict
It should be called Resident Evil: Slow Motion. Slow motion is used way too much and gets tiresome. You can see the heavy Matrix influence during the fight scenes. I’m not going to talk about the plot, acting, or script because you should know what you are getting when watching a movie based on a video game. Unfortunately, this installment doesn’t know that and tries to take itself too seriously, especially with the slow motion pose shots. If you’re not a fan, you could probably pass on this.

Random Info I got from this File:
    • Makeup magical comes on during the next scene
    • Don’t trust high powered Executives
    • You can load a role of quarters in a shotgun
File Status: 6 out of 10
